Comments
  • Definitely it has no connection with your api server at 10.50.50.201:8001. Can you confirm that this address is correct, the api server is working, and test the connection from the kubelet machine to that address?
  • Issue was related to Docker storage type (btrfs) failing. Interestingly 'btrfs' worked fine until 1.9.x. Updating storage to overlay2 fixed the issue.
